Striker Calleri and midfielder Rodrigo Nestor, after recovering from injury, have trained normally and should be linked with the fencing at Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova.
Luan, with a more serious injury to his left thigh, has yet to develop and is still peeking into the duel against Bahia. In training on Thursday, Sene led tactical action.

Possible team for the match against Bahia has Thiago Volpi, Orijuela, Arboleda, Miranda and Rinaldo; LeZero, Igor Gomez, Gabriel Sara and Luciano; Rigoni and Callery.
The other option is to keep Leo on the team, with three defenders, and take out one of the three most advanced men. Rogerio Ceni is still leading two more pre-match training sessions: Friday and Saturday.
